How do you want to feel this year?
Most of us start off the New Year with such great intent to reach our goals, whatever they may be. Lose more weight, spend more time with family, find love and/or make more money… The lists are endless and by March they’re mostly forgotten. In the video interview below, our Self-help Columnist, Athena Laz chats to inspiration and bestselling author, Danielle LaPorte on how to go about setting resolutions that will leave you loving the 2017 you create.
‘We have the procedures of achievement upside down. Typically we come up with our to-do lists, our bucket lists, and our strategic plans — all the stuff we want to have, get, accomplish, and experience outside of ourselves. All of those aspirations are being driven by an innate desire to feel a certain way. What if, first, we got clear on how we actually wanted to feel in our life, and then we laid out our intentions? What if your most desired feelings consciously informed how you plan your day, your year, your career, your holidays — your life? You know what will happen with that kind of inner clarity and outer action? You’ll feel the way you want to feel more often than not. Decisions will be easier to make: You’ll know what to say no to and what to say hell-yes to. You’ll be more optimistic, more open-hearted. It will be easier for you to return to your center in the midst of a challenge’. – Danielle LaPorte
